The service to the popular wine region runs between July 3 and Sept. 8, 2019 three days a week.

"As the only network carrier to offer non-stop transatlantic service to Bordeaux, the addition of a fifth destination in France further enhances Air Canada's competitive position in the French market," said Mark Galardo, vice-president, network planning at Air Canada. "Our three weekly flights to Bordeaux provide travellers unique access to the famed wine growing region and the popular Nouvelle-Aquitaine market. In addition to playing a special role in connecting Canada with many French-speaking communities around the world, our Montreal hub is increasingly popular among U.S. travellers who appreciate seamless connections to international destinations on Air Canada."

Flights are timed to optimize connectivity to Air Canada's extensive North American network, including major cities along the U.S. east coast including New York, Boston, Philadelphia, also allowing easy connections from Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas.
